Good quick hairstyles?

What are some good ideas for quick hairstylers to do in the morning? I am always rushing to get to work on time and usually just throw my hair up in a bun or put it half-up half-down. Anyone have any suggestions? I always shower in the morning - since we're not supposed to blowdry does everyone else leave the house with soaking wet hair??
3b hair, bit damaged, not sure what to do with it most of the time - always wearing it up!

    I leave the house with soaking wet hair every wash day! LOL I don't really care. My hair looks good air-dried, and I haven't a clue how to diffuse, so that's what I do!

    I don't have any set hairstyles. I generally do: day 1) down, day 2) half down/half up, and day 3) all up. But, when I'm figuring out days 2 and 3, I have to let my hair do what it wants. It ends up going however looks good. I do like bobby pins alot! I keep plenty of those around, and alot of barettes.
    I'm a 3b, with 3c underneath.

    Used to be CG, now I'm not. Using Suave Aloe & Waterlily shampoo & condish, JoiWhip, BRHG, Suave Aloe gel, Aussie Tizz No Frizz, and anything else that looks good!

    I'm a huge fan of the half-up fake bun, where you use a loose band, and then just don't pull thru the hair all the way as you would for a pony. I then use one or two large bobby pins stuck thru it to hold & shape it. It looks like the top & sides are in a loose, soft bun, but with curls cascading below it. And you can do it w/out a mirror.
    Ditto style #2: the Venus on a Seashell/Shakespeare in in Love do, with 2 1-inch sections just above the ear lightly twisted and pinned at the back of the head. Your hair looks gently 'roped back'. Bobby pins are things of wonder.

    This took me all of two minutes this morning:

    SillyHairStyle.jpg

    It’s basically two bee-butt buns wrapped really tightly on either side of my head. Admittedly, it’s just a messy, silly style – but it fits the “quick” requirement. (Not so sure about the "good"... :? ) If you work somewhere conservative, it’s not going to cut it! :lol:

    Please pardon the crappy picture… I had to take it myself (sans cosmetics today), and wasn’t able to do a photo shoot to get a good pic as I am actually supposed to be working – go figure! :twisted: :wink:
